My wife who spent 6 years as a Customs agent is a firm believer in evening out the balance of power.
My wife is an Army medic Vet. Couldn't qualify with an M16 but "Expert badge for the .45.My wife also believes that a woman should be able to carry what ever weapon she so chooses for her own protection. My wife has her life time concealed carry permit and believe me when I say she carries and can shoot. Our family has nick named her the" Annie Oakley " of the family! And, we are senior citizens, both over 60 years of age. My grandchildren all have said "Don't mess with my MeeMaw, she will shoot ya!" Mess with any of our children or Grand children and see . And she loves the black evil rifle too.
